Default Mute button hard to activate?

Please Login to Remove!

I've had my 8310 for a couple of weeks now, and today was trying to use the mute button on a call while in my car. The button seems to be indented compared to the top of the case, and I found I had to press pretty hard to engage the button. After my call (where I mute whenever I'm not talking to prevent road noise), my index finger was pretty sore from pressing so hard.

Is this typical of all the Curve units? My fingers really aren't all that wide, and I'm trying to decide if I should go by the store to look at a replacement.

Mine is not that hard to push. I have the Seidio case so it does make it pretty deep, though, but don't have too much trouble.

I would say it's hard to get to, but not hard to push. Probably worth a drive to the store to compare to the buttons on the floor models.
